Who will be the last player added to the W.C. all-star roster?
There are presumably 4 options for the final spot
Since it was announced Griffin will start in place of Yao, that leaves 1 spot on the western conference roster for the last player.
F-Lamar Odom, LA Lakers
Stats: 15.4 ppg, 9.6 rpg, 57% FG, 2.9 apg
F-LaMarcus Aldridge, Portland
Stats: 21.3 ppg, 9 rpg, 1.2 bpg, 49% FG
F-Kevin Love, Minnesota
Stats: 21.4 ppg, 15.5 rpg, 47% FG, 44% 3PT
F-Zach Randolph, Memphis
Stats: 20 ppg, 13.2 rpg, 49% FG, 1.5 apg
who do you guys think deserves it? my vote is for Kevin Love
I'm hoping it's K-Love but it can very well be LaMarcus Aldridge because his team is winning.
Stern most of the time picks a guy alot of fans overwhelmingly say deserves to be there..I think he's picking Kevin Love
I have stated my case before, and if he did make it I would be happy with every single ASG sub, which would probably be a first. My vote would be LA, Kevin Love, Z-Bo and Lamar Odom in that order. In a different world, Lamar Odom would have been an All-Star multiple times by now, but I am pretty sure he is fine with having some jewelry instead, which the other 3 are far and away from getting.
i know not many true fans care what race a player is as long as he's good..But i bet behind closed doors..There are alot of white fans and whites media types love the fact that a white player is having a record breaking year...
A source has mentioned(I believe it was yahoo's Adrian Wojanowski(SP?) via BTPH on another post) that Steve Nash is a favorite for the spot. So I guess that's a possibility. In my opinion, it should be Lamarcus Aldridge. If J Smoove wasn't good enough then Lamar Odom isn't, Blake took the bad team but good numbers spot so sorry to K Love. Zach Randolph has had more help and their teams are similar so I guess ZBo would be second in line. And that is my logic. :)
Who watched Kevin Love play in Oregon, that statement you just made Rudeboy, is ridiculous. If people or the media do, it is truly sad. Plus, as well as he is rebounding, who's record is he breaking? Everyone mentions the 30-30 Moses Malone thing, but his team is AWFUL. Yes, the All-Star game is based on individual achievement, but a good way to prove that is by winning games. I am completely impartial when it comes to Love and Aldridge, I like them both the same, and I completely think Aldridge deserves to make the team. However, I feel race has NOTHING to do with who is chosen. I do not understand why race is seemingly brought into these things still, it is just mind boggling to me. A race trying to claim a player for pride, white people being happy that a white player is rebounding the ball well. You guys seriously care about this stuff? If Love makes the All-Star game, I think it has nothing to do with his being white and everything to do with his averaging 2 more RPG than any other player in the league.
All-Star Game is about excitement. Put exciting athletic and talented players in and leave the boring old ones. They put up stats and are on good teams, but that doesn't make them exciting! Give them what they deserve in the All-NBA Teams and give us a show! I mean, really!
Wait... Blake Griffin is starting?
greg popvich gets to pick who starts and i dont think he has anounced anything.
I heard Blake Griffin is starting due to him being the next highest votes getter or something
Yea... I was about to say... Gasol hasn't been as great since his hot start, but I still think he should replace Yao at center in the starting lineup.
He ended up with more votes than Pau Gasol?
pau finished ahead of blake
I'll admit i haven't checked the votes, but that's what i heard while watching Magic V Heat
will be the best player in the seccond half of the season in the nba
hes ganna have this ship on his shoulder and hes ganna F shet up
cause Timmy might pass it up
So Monta, Love, LA, and Nash will fight for those spots
So many Allstar calibur players whose teams are losing. I really feel for Monta, he is one of a kind and really doesnt get the recognition he deserves.
I think Rudy Gay should be in consideration for his first All-Star nod, he's having a great year, especially in close games where he's hit a number of game-winners. That said, if it's really a replacement for Yao, it should be Aldridge.
you should see how he looked after he found out.. http://www.csnbayarea.com/pages/warriorsvideo
Just click the one that says 2.3: Monta Ellis reacts to being left out of the All-Star game
He responded pretty well tonight , 24 6 and 5
it has to be kevin love
la monta love zbo heck even nash and tp deserve consideration id personally pick love yea i know hes playing on one of the worst teams in the league but putting up 21 and 16 is amazing
wouldnt it make sense for pops to put timmy in the starting line up sense he is one of his players and plus just out of pure respect for one of the greatest ever
